A major in mathematics opens up a broad range of career options — including jobs in science, business, education and many other areas. The program is also excellent preparation for graduate school. In addition to an engaging classroom experience, our department helps students find and pursue internships. We also offer a variety of study abroad opportunities, including an exchange program specifically for mathematics and computer science students at Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria.
What Makes Seton Hall Special?
Professor Mary Balkun shares what sets Seton Hall apart.
From calculus to discrete mathematics to linear algebra, you’ll study many topics in math, along with the core Arts and Sciences requirements. Students in the honors track also complete their own capstone research project, which leads to a thesis. In each classroom, you’ll find like-minded students and Ph.D.-holding faculty members who are recognized for their research programs. Right now our department includes researchers who are exploring differential equations, analysis, and graph theory and combinatorics.
The Department of Mathematics faculty has published in a variety of mathematical fields, ranging from number theory to differential equations to graph theory and combinatorics. As recognized experts in these areas of mathematics, our faculty members consistently publish in top journals and present at the top conferences in the field. With small class sizes, faculty members take particular interest in sharing their work with students and encouraging them to explore the logical beauty of advanced mathematics.
As one of the country's leading Catholic universities, Seton Hall has been developing students in mind, heart and spirit since 1856. Home to nearly 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students, Seton Hall is a place that nurtures compassionate leaders who are prepared to make a difference in the world.
Seton Hall offers all the advantages of a large research university - a national reputation; challenging academic programs; notable alumni; state-of-the-art facilities; renowned faculty; and extensive opportunities for internships, research and scholarship - with all the benefits of a small, supportive and nurturing environment.
